Dom Brown to Miss Opening Day for Phillies
With just three days left in Florida, the Phillies still have a few roster decisions to make before they head north.
One of them has been decided- Dom Brown will start the season on the disabled list, leaving a void in right field to begin the year.
Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday that it "could be unlikely" Brown was ready for Opening Day, and the team confirmed that today. Brown is suffering from left Achilles tendinitis, an ailment he was diagnosed with about two weeks ago

With Brown out, the Phillies will turn to some combination of Grady Sizemore, Darin Ruf, Jeff Francoeur Jordan Danks, and Brian Bogusevic to hold down right field
